Forest for the trees, forest for the trees.
Gagners only good in the one zone, from the opponents blue line back to the Oilers goal line, he struggles bigtime. He's a danger at both ends of the ice. Easily push off the puck, and is sub .500 in the faceoff circle.
A chain is only as strong as it's weakest link, and Gagner, Hemsky and Horcoff all need to be gone. Get Kyle Wellwood in here to replace one of these guys. Better in every statistical category and for only 1/4 the money. Use 1 or 2 of these guys to move up and select Barkov in the coming draft.
